Last week, OTP presented the first part of a conversation with activist William Omowale Clay, spokesperson for the December 12th Movement. That conversation centered on the issues Black people face today, and the importance of Black Solidarity. It continues next month.
Omowale also spoke on leadership in the example of the late Dr. Carlos Russell, founder of Black Solidarity Day in 1969.
Omowale, also a graphics artist and historian, shared photographs that missed last week’s issue due to space consideration. We are proud to present these images shared by Omowale in this week’s paper:
–LEFT:A photo of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, capturing the moment he is greeted in Brooklyn, NY by community leaders Viola Plummer, Chair, December 12th Movement International Secretariat, and Dr. Beatrice Shadidi Kinsey, CEO and Founder, P.E.A.C.E.

BSD’s 51st anniversary, with activities organized and/or hosted by Sista Plummer and supported by Dr. Kinsey, will be commemorated next week.
